Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings using a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The machine learned model takes into account factors including: the age of a review, helpfulness votes by customers and whether the reviews are from verified purchases.
An insightful read. Its contents could never be more relevant today given the disruption to global supply chains and the threats to the existence of many once viable businesses. Just when business owners need all the support they can muster to traverse these troubling times comes a book that promotes thought leadership, innovation and critical thinking.
The topic is always relevant but in these very challenging and unpredictable times, the subject matter is more important than ever. I have read many management and strategy books that cover the themes of change and disruption but this book is very well structured and organised logically. It has practical tips and traps that can be easily applied to all manner of industries and businesses - small and large and the useful summaries at the end of each chapter are a handy checklist and go to guide. Absolutely money well spent.
‘Fit for Disruption’ is a must read and more so in these challenging times amid COVID-19. It is a perfect depiction of what our current global market is struggling to achieve in these disruptive times. Not only is it easy to follow, it highlights important facts about how to grow and develop a business in tough times. Matthew has a flare for how to captivate a reader and uses current examples that businesses and entrepreneurs can relate to. I would recommend this book for anyone who requires guidance and help in achieving better results in their workplace environment.
